Welcome to The Spa Spy, a luxury spa hotel and resort recommendation website and lifestyle hub.
The Spa Spy was created by celebrity make up artist Lisa Stokes in 2012.
For more than a decade Lisa has beautified an array of stars from Kate Moss to Juliette Lewis, Daniel Craig to Justin Timberlake.
Travelling the world working on fashion and beauty shoots, her combined knowledge and love of travel, beauty and well-being was the inspiration for The Spa Spy.
“I believe everyone, men and women from all walks of life, can benefit from a little piece of tranquility; a pamper, some relaxation and ‘me time’. The properties we review and recommend, in my opinion have a bit of everything. Luxurious accommodation, great food and wine as well as fantastic spas and treatments.”
All properties and products we recommend are personally reviewed & tested by The Spa Spy Team.
We are delighted to announce our new partnership with the boutique hotel specialists, Mr & Mrs Smith.
You can now seamlessly book many of the Spa Spy’s featured properties via their award-winning booking service – with best rates guaranteed, Smith extras and special spa offers.
